Hanoi-Exhibitions: “Bicycles” by Thu Van Tran and “Ellipses” by Ha Manh Thang

Vincom Centre for Contemporary Art (VCCA)

B1 – R3, Vincom Mega Mall Royal City

72A Nguyen Trai street, Thanh Xuan District

“Bicycles” is Thu Van Tran’s first solo installation exhibition in Vietnam, marking a milestone for the artist’s participation and involvement in the art scene in her home country. The exhibition was inspired by a memorable song from the artist’s childhood, with symbolic local media (rubber bands, sails, ceramics).

“Ellipses” is a solo exhibition presenting new works of Ha Manh Thang, one of the most prominent faces of the Vietnamese art scene, of abstract expressionist art language and installation art. Thang’s works have the sophistication of Western modern art, yet still hold in them an Asian spirit, reminding us of the past and the regret for what is lost.

HCMC-Exhibition “Instability” by Truong The Linh

Craig Thomas Gallery, 27i Tran Nhat Duat Street, Tan Dinh Ward, District 1

A solo exhibition of paintings by Hue-based artist Truong The Linh.

Linh’s paintings arguably focus just as much on the medium of paint, and how it reacts on the surface of his canvases, as they do on the subjects of the paintings. In his new collection of works, the artist continues to explore the sensuous realm of paint, skin and figuration seen in his earlier paintings.

HCMC-Exhibition “an everyday day” by Nguyen Quang Huy

Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, Dakao, District 1

A solo exhibition of new work by Hanoi-based artist Nguyen Quang Huy. Considered one of Vietnam’s pioneering artists following the Doi Moi reforms initiated in 1986 (a period of economic liberalisation marked by increased artistic experimentation), Quang Huy will be showing a suite of oil paintings depicting Hmong women and misty mountain scenes created with hazy brushworks in his distinctive muted palette of blue-grey grisaille.
